on collective bargaining comes from republicans. all attacks on education comes with -- from republicans. in the case of democrats, this was not a priority, and they were not willing to spend political capital. when we face such a unique economic crisis, we need smart economic policies. immigration reform, the right and left have already proved the benefits of having reform. the center of economic progress released a report that having the benefits of the drink act passed -- the dream act passed -- >> martin luther king said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get
a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it is important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure we are helping small businesses and companies here in the united states. that we take some of the money we are saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america, and that we reduce our deficit in a way that makes us ablet -- that makes it able for us to create critical investments. it is up to you. are we going to go from the top down, which is what got us into this mess, or do we embrace the new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney. >> thank you, jim. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. appreciate the university of denver and their welcome. congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most dramatic place you could imagine, here with me. so congratulations. [laughter] this is a tender topic. i have had the occasion over the last several yea
representative has gone out too far from the constituency and then educate the elect rate about how the representative sideways with the will with the public opinion of the people. you take that ad that cross roads ran. we were running it in the states talking about how the president passed this stimulus program. the stimulus thing was wildly unpopular and the ads that the super pac can do is hold the president or another elected official to account for what they can. it can't change public opinion. we can identify places where an elected representative is sideways with the constituent and let people know about it. i don't know that i agree with it the premises of the question it's necessarily bad. i think it brings a to light a lot of things people wouldn't otherwise know. >> i think in the credibility product. i-- [inaudible] it would allow challengers and underfunded candidates if you were to just waive a wand to get rid of limits and allow teem contribute as much as they want to the candidates as long as it's disclosed the press and opponent could decide whether or not that is h
immigration policy and how we need to change education policy alice well. immigration policy is based on family relationships. it is not based on economic considerations, skills and knowledge. while we need to revitalize education for americans, we need to recognize the extent to which people are coming to america to learn we need to do what we need to do to keep them in america. >> this is our core problem. there trillions of connections in the brain called neurons. they start down at age 6 when they start public school. kids at a school soared like eagles, got college scholarships, they got wired. when you know this and you do not talk about it and do not do anything about it, this is another recipe for disaster. our public education system is just really got to be strained out. the teachers' unions are primarily concerned about how much they make a year, and that is not where the concern has to be. it is making sure that children have the funds in education that are needed for education. >> we spend double per person to educate k through 12, double other nations. we do the same thi
involved, because we're trying to get their money. >> it is a matter of public education, and that is where groups like dave's and other organizations that are trying to beat the drums to get americans to understand what is going on, is that what you feel is most important, educational? >> the first thing, in our country, if i had three wishes -- a strong, moral, ethical base. i had that growing up in the depression. a strong family unit in every home. now the divorce rate is over 50%, right? that is destabilizing. when i grew up in the depression of all times, we had the finest public schools in the world and the one thing a democracy must have is a well- educated population. our public schools are at the bottom of the industrialized world. that is the country. the great state of texas, where i went to schools and had an incredible education, is either 47 or 40 night in the 50 states. that is all our responsibility and we can correct that, but with these problems we face now, that is so fundamental about what we must do now, and we cannot pass that off to a house or senate or the state or
or blackmail our allies and friends. i want to make sure the education system fulfills its hope and promise. i've had a strong record of working with democrats and republicans in texas to make sure no child is left behind. i understand the limited role of the federal government, but it could be a constructive role when it comes to reform, by insisting that there be a strong accountability systems. my intentions are to earn your vote and earn your confidence. i'm asking for your vote. i want you to be on my team. and for those of you working, thanks from the bottom of my heart. for those of you making up your mind, i would be honored to have your support. >> vice president gore, two minutes. >> i want to thank everybody who watched and listened tonight because this is indeed a crucial time in american history. we're at a fork in the road. we have this incredible prosperity, but a lot of people have been left behind. and we have a very important decision to make. will we use the prosperity to enrich all of our families and not just a few? indeed a crucial time in american history. we're at a for
for energy policy, education, for jobs. that came across really strong. one comment about $90 billion given to bring jobs where we could have hired 2 million teachers really made a huge difference on that, too. president obama looks like he was uncomfortable. he did not look like he wanted to be there. mitt romney had a good night. whether that will show up at the polls is another story. i think mitt romney has a good shot now. if they get mitt romney in there, it is a win for a america, too. host: of next is bernard in south carolina. hello. caller: how are you doing? i do not understand what the caller was saying because mitt romney did not explain anything. he kept saying he knew how to do it, but he never said how he was going to do it. he brought up a lot about what obama had done, but what is he going to do? if he has a plan to do something, it seems like he ought to lay that plan out for the american people so he can say what he is going to do. to me he is not saying anything. thank you for taking my call this morning. people need to look at the facts and what he is saying before the
new jobs. we cannot slow up on education, because that's the engine that is going to give us the economic growth and competitiveness that we need. and we are not going to slow up on the whole idea of providing for affordable health care for americans, none of which, when we get to talk about health care, is as my -- as the governor characterized -- characterized. the bottom line here is that we are going to, in fact, eliminate those wasteful spending that exist in the budget right now, a number of things i don't have time, because the light is blinking, that i won't be able to mention, but one of which is the $100 billion tax dodge that, in fact, allows people to take their post office box off- shore, avoid taxes. i call that unpatriotic. i call that unpatriotic. >> governor? >> that's what i'm talking about. >> governor? >> well, the nice thing about running with john mccain is i can assure you he doesn't tell one thing to one group and then turns around and tells something else to another group, including his plans that will make this bailout plan, this rescue plan, even be
bit more accountability. i think if we curtailed some of that and put that towards education and infrastructure -- governor romney says we are going to build a 12 million jobs. what are you going to do? are they just going to come about? >> are you voting for governor romney? >> no, i am not. i'm voting for president obama again. >> charlottesville. go ahead with your comments. >> yes -- >> charlottesville, make sure you mute your television and then go ahead with your comments by otherwise there is a feedback. charlottesville, are you there? >> yeah, i am there. i am an independent voter. i moved to this country five years ago. i was a legal immigrant. when i came here, like president obama says, when we were caught, i did not have nothing to i worked so hard. i got the support of the government, and i am now a biochemistry major and in pre- med. governor romney is not telling the truth, like the president said. yes, he did not perform very well last night, but he was saying the truth. if you are president, if you are a candidate, you owe people the truth, because the truth
- college educated white women as a group that has moved some in the last couple of weeks. non-college educated white men are a no-fly zone for the president. but the women were up for grabs. have you noticed anything like that? is that a metric you are looking at? >> it is. everybody talks about the women's vote. there are a number of factors. people do not realize this -- john mccain won white women by seven points. that is not enough to win overall. obviously, he lost by seven points. when you look at white women voters, there are groups that are more likely to vote republican. those include white women without college degrees, white women who are married, and women with children. when you look at the differences between white women who are married and white women who are single, whether it be they are not married, they are widowed, or they are divorced, those groups vote overwhelmingly for obama. if ron is right and the president is making gains with non-college educated white women, that is problematic for our side. i have not seen as much as -- as much of a shift as he ha
in college after the cultural revolution. this was the most liberal era in china's educational system. they were exposed to western ideas he reads english right well. now that is a wonderful opportunity. this also could be a problem because if we fail to understand, this is a generation, because of their personal experience, they do not want the electorate. they will be more conducive with giving reasoning. you just use force to intimidate them and they will react strongly. what i said is important. that if we use force, just a single-minded lecture, we're not resonating very well. they will react strongly, the hu jintao generation. i do not know if you watch the interview. this is 15 years ago. he interviewed -- in "60 minutes." michael wallace points his finger and says you're a dictator. several times he said that. he laughed. after many years, people thought his approach was very smart. it made michael wallace embarrassed. if you do the same thing with xi jinping, it will be a disaster. we need to know this kind of mindset, this kind of experience. that is why what henry kissinger
the responsibility of putting together a school finance program. this was to pay for our children's education. i had to look at every single tax available, a sales-tax and income-tax, you name it. i have done it. so did the lieutenant governor at the time. that is something the lieutenant governor of the time said was our responsibility. you would not know anything about it. what you do not do is do your job as a legislator, worried problems will come along later, to try to run a campaign. >> i do not blame you. >> went over and over again, there is nothing else to suggest. that is all you do. >> there is nothing else to suggest that. i am sorry, mr. sadler, i think you lied. i am sorry you want to attack me personally. and impugn my character. i do not intend to reciprocate. that is a misstatement. there's a sharp policy different between the policies you have advocated and are advocating. i also think -- >> let him finish, please. >> if you will stop him in a reasonable time -- he just goes on for 20 minutes. >> we only have two minutes left ear. we will try to wrap up. >> mr. cruz, if you are suc
. they apply the worldwide economics of the labor market place to your value. a poorly educated semi motivated american worker is not a very valuable commodity on the world market. that is the problem. if he went the economy to improve -- if you want the economy to approve, we need to be nationalists -- global financial dominance is what is killing us. the investor class is ruining the worker class of america. host: 4 you yourself, has your idea of the american dream changed in the last couple of years? caller: i have been very fortunate. i would say it has. i am much more cynical now. there seems to be a minority of americans that believe the most important thing in the world is to get rich as soon as they can and they do not care how they do it. that is killing 80% of the american workers in this country. host: mary, where are you calling us from? caller: illinois. from what i heard from the last caller, i a greed. we cannot expect to be forever the super power most important person in the whole universe. we have to be part of the world and deal with what is out there. it is changing. host:
as soon after the 20th of january to fight the war, but we also have to do with drug education prevention here at home. that is one of the things i hope i could lead personally as president of the united states. we have had great success in my own state. we have reached out to people in my family's and been able to help them in the early elementary grades. we can fight this war and win this war. we could do so in a way that marshall's our forces and provide real support for state and local law enforcement officers who have not been getting that kind of support due to the way which will bring down violence in this nation. it will help our youngsters to stay away from drugs. we will stop the avalanche of drugs pouring into the country. we will make it possible for our kids and families to grow up in safe and secure in decent neighborhoods. to go before we go on -->> before we go on, do you agree on -- >> absolutely not. it is the bipartisan bill that is now ended in the congress. and insurance companies support the other bill. they like it because it does not accomplish what i think really
figuring that out sooner. in fact, by thiing about where you want your education to lead, while you're still in school, you might find the best route leads somewhere you weren't even looking. let's get to work. but i still have a runny nose.

jobs and he answered education. he was asked about jobs and answered by the education. i thought he may not have it . like george bush in 2004 not used to be crossamed and he showed that. let's listen to more. >> the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deduction and loop holes that only affect high income individuals to avoidd either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it is arithmetic. >> steve: which we have heard the president say on the stump. it is interesting and so critical for people to see, i was reading one poll, 15 or 18 percent of the country waiting to see the first debate because they were sitting on the fence and they want to see the guys side by side. mitt romney's job was to look presidential. he looked presidential and looked like he had better answers than the president of the united states. >> gretchen: and so the group of voters you are tryying to get at this point, middle class americans. that was the thesis. uncommitted voters, 500 voters polled directly bef
the state continue to educate people about the need for photo i.d. i'm going to let the state ask for photo i.d. atle positive, but enjoin the part of the law that requires voters to have photo i.d. people wanted it all put on hold. the judge said i don't need to go that far. there is always the possibility the state could go back to the supreme court on this, but begin how skeptical the supreme court was when they looked at this a few weeks ago, i think it's over. that means that the new voter i.d. law for the most part will not go into effect in pennsylvania. people who oppose this law say the judge's ruling may create confusion. it leaves the impression you may have to have a photo i.d. law. he doesn't think that will be a problem, but he can't take the state's word that they are going to get all the problems fixed in time for the election. >> it's a big development with 20 electoral votes in pennsylvania. later we'll get reaction to this decision from former pennsylvania governor ed rendell and mayor michael nutter. >>> who will bring the dynamite to denver? a little over the a day for
